Maybe check out some of those alternative browsers? Galeon/Opera and some
Tcl/Tk one mentioned on the list could be way more useful than Netscape.
Running the X4.0.1 debs when they stabilise and shrink coul dbe a good idea.
At the moment they're pretty large but Branden intends to strip them when
they go release. He's compiling with all sorts of patches and optimisations
AFAIK so should still be quite peppy.
Turn on, dial in, geek out...
